Vignerons de Roquemaure
Browse by tag
Region: France - Rhône
The cellars of Roquemaure are situated on the western edge of the mighty Rhône, 20km (12 miles) North of Avignon between the villages of Tavel and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. In 1922, the growers from nine surrounding villages settled their differences and pooled their resources to build a chais. The aim from the start was to produce high quality, terroir-driven wines made in the most sustainable and non-interventionist method possible.
Today 60 vignerons continue in the same manner from the now slightly enlarged chais. Over the years, new viticultural practises, modern winemaking techniques and the building of a new air conditioned cellar, has taken their wines from strength to strength and are consistently noted as some of the best in the region.
What sets the Vignerons de Roquemaure apart is their constant efforts to improve quality and accentuate the characteristics of their splendid terroir. They are well on their way to total organic viticulture and vinification.
